• CIA Texas Degree Programs

    Our San Antonio campus attracts an extraordinary blend of aspiring chefs and culinary leaders who are passionate about food and the world of Latin cuisines. Here, we offer our innovative associate degree programs in either culinary arts or baking and pastry arts, based on the same curriculum that has helped so many future food leaders at our main campus in Hyde Park, NY.

    74% of leading food employers surveyed prefer to hire CIA grads.

    The campus is located in the historic Pearl complex, site of a 19th century brewery that’s been restored and transformed into an exhilarating cultural and culinary center. Our student-staffed Nao Latin Gastro Bar is here, as are the celebrated restaurants of several CIA alumni.

    The educational resources at the campus include a one-of-a-kind Latin kitchen with both indoor and outdoor cooking stations, plus five other teaching kitchens and a professional bakeshop, classrooms, demonstration theaters, a computer lab, the Learning Strategies Center/Library Learning Commons, and a library.
